Learning has always been my passion, and I strive to make it fun and stress-free for others. For some, a big classroom and independent study doesn't quite get the job done. Everyone has different learning styles, and some extra one-on-one guidance may be exactly what a student needs to conquer the subject material at hand. As a current USF graduate student and teaching assistant I have all the skills necessary to succeed in academia, and I would love to share them with anyone that comes for help. With a strong background in psychology, I understand different learning styles and personality types. No two people are the same, just as no two people learn the same way.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning promotes growth.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Break the ice, get to know the student's strengths and weaknesses, set goals, and make a plan.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Helping a student understand the subject will increase his/her confidence to learn independently.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Setting goals helps motivate a student to work hard toward one step at a time.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Tackling the concept from different approaches will prevent a student from getting frustrated and help him/her see the issue in a different light.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Reading out loud, highlighting, and taking notes increases reading comprehension.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I would use incentives and prizes to make difficult subjects more fun.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I would ask questions at the beginning of the next session to make sure they remember and fully understand the material.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

Independent work.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

Books, paper, pencil, calculator, colored pens/markers, and sometimes video.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I ask the student questions about his/her strengths and weaknesses. Then, I track progress and pay closer attention to necessary areas.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I make sure that each student feels comfortable, and then I use techniques that suit his/her learning styles.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

It is important to make each student feel secure in order to get to whatever area he/she needs. This may involve humor, puzzles, point incentives, etc.
